Well positioned, stress-free oasis within the busy city.

I cannot speak highly enough of Wardian London. As soon as you enter the Lobby you feel immediately at peace and removed from the rush of London. The design of both the communal spaces and the apartments are beautiful as well as being functional. The staff are some of the kindest people I have met in London. They will go out of their way to help you and are always polite and friendly. There is an app for the building which is very convenient. The other residents all seem to be polite and friendly too.

Please tell us what you like and dislike about this area:

I believe Canary Wharf to be one of the most beautiful and functional areas of London. The area is always clean, there is easy access to most amenities one would need for daily life, it is safe and I have found the attitude of the people that live and work here to be the most pleasant I have experienced in the city of London.

Please share one thing (or more) which you wish you had known before you moved in:

I wish I had known about the area, I would have moved to Canary Wharf a lot sooner.

If there is one thing you would change about your flat or property what would it be:

Everything in the property works seamlessly. The only thing I can fault is that the marble countertops appear to have not been sealed properly, but the aftercare team came and looked into it immediately after we reported it and it is completely understandable that one or two flats would have a small oversight like this with a new build of this magnitude.

1 Wards Place

Review Date Jul 2021

1 Wards Place is the most luxury development in East London and one of the best in London. The Lobby area with trees and open swimming pool and private cinema, bars and business lounges give this place a unique character and luxury feeling.

Please tell us what you like and dislike about this area:

Well connected with central London and thanks to close proximity to the City Airport an ideal place to travel from business wise. Great restaurants, bars and shopping.

Please share one thing (or more) which you wish you had known before you moved in:

Open swimming pool which is great

How has the building management responded to any problems or issues you have raised:

Satisfactory and swift, good communication being very helpful

Superb transportation and gymnastics room

Restaurants, clubs, beauty centers, salons facilities nearby.

Beautiful, comfortable – but impractical.

Verified Resident
Verified Resident
Review Date May 2021

The lack of adequate storage within the flats is apalling. Even modest home items, a couple of suitcases – no space whatsoever! It’s frankly, a classic case of form over function with zero thought for the impact on people who wish to live at the flat. The pool, gym etc are fantastic – but what’s the point if you return home to boxes and bags lying out in your living room? And the absence of any visitor parking (or adequate resident parking) – even for a few hours, is ridiculous. People with families, or with special needs, older residents – need convenient access to their vehicles. Parking in private parking lots in other buildings is not practical for everyone. So, a beautiful development (although the corridors on the apartment level are dark, with little natural light, and heavy fabric/colours which are somewhat oppressive) – the flats have extremely significant practical limitations on comfortable living.

Please tell us what you like and dislike about this area:

Extremely wide range of high quality shops, bars, eateries and open spaces. Some of the best in London. Transport links are great – though at night, it can get very quiet/feel unsafe in parts.
Parking availability (free) is dismal.

Please share one thing (or more) which you wish you had known before you moved in:

Lack of adequate parking for residents and non existent for visitors. No practical storage place in the flat for personal belongings.

What is the best feature of your home:

Balcony with a great view. Plenty of natural light.

Dear Soumen,

Thank you for taking the time to leave a review of Wardian and we’re pleased to hear that you are enjoying the facilities and the development in general.

Whilst not in the apartments there are storage cages in the basement which will be available to residents soon so if you would like to contact the concierge we can ensure that you are on the waiting list for one of these. In respect of the parking we are happy to accommodate short term drop offs and unloading and if you have need for this then please speak to the concierge and we can facilitate.

Kind regards,

Joseph Whitehead

The flowers and fragrances in the lobby make a big impact when walking into the building. Staff help promptly. Waiting area and concierge are in the perfect position. Seating area in the lobby make it very comfortable for guests that need to wait. We love it.

Please tell us what you like and dislike about this area:

The location is perfect close to shops, restaurants and public transport.

Please share one thing (or more) which you wish you had known before you moved in:

Possibly the measurements of the rooms so we could plan ahead for what size and shape furniture we would require.

If there is one thing you would change about your flat or property what would it be:

Possibly having a waste/bin room on each floor as we have to carry the rubbish via the lift.

Really enjoying Wardian, despite pandemic

We chose Wardian as we really like the way it brings green space into the balconies. The apartment itself is well laid out.
Facilities are another big draw, with Gym, pool, cinema, bar, all in the building. Use and availability of these has been curtailed by the pandemic, but we are eagerly awaiting the day when everything is open and working again, which should be soon.
The post room is really handy and the concierge staff are great.
There also seems to be a very good community spirit developing here among residents. Long may it continue.

Please tell us what you like and dislike about this area:

Very well located, there are lots of places to eat and drink in CW, plus a decent shopping centre. Connections are good for the rest of London with Jubilee and DLR nearby.

Please share one thing (or more) which you wish you had known before you moved in:

I wish we had known that so many buildings, in particular Aspen, had been coming up, as that development in particular will block our view, which at the moment is spectacular.

If there is one thing you would change about your flat or property what would it be:

There is a lot of marble, which needs to be treated very carefully, so we would probably have preferred something more hard wearing.

The wardian building is beautifully designed and has been well thought out. The ambience is fantastic, and although the amenities are currently closed, they appear to an extremely high standard. The reception area is large and well staffed at all times to answer any queries that may arise.

Please tell us what you like and dislike about this area:

Lots of restaurants and shops
Good transport collections
Minimal parking

Please share one thing (or more) which you wish you had known before you moved in:

Stunning views, look forward to the amenities opening
Occasionally can be a wait time for the lifts which are small in size (made more difficult by covid as distancing required)

How has the building management responded to any problems or issues you have raised:

Fortunately minimal problems have arisen so far, staff are prompt to reply on weekdays.

The building looks nice and the flats are well designed with good space and a refreshing open layout. The staff are efficient however some could be more friendly. We are waiting for facilities to open due to COVID but these are extensive with an outdoor pool, bar, sky gardens and gym.

Please tell us what you like and dislike about this area:

Nice to be living by the river and there are plenty of local shops and restaurants to choose from. Transport is good with DLR and Jubilee in close proximity.
Only downside is close to DLR track so some sound with windows open.

Please share one thing (or more) which you wish you had known before you moved in:

Noise from the dlr outside our flat and how loud this may be.

If there is one thing you would change about your flat or property what would it be:

Bigger second bathroom with more open floor space and a bath.
